When she has the kitchen all to herself, Phyllis Grant of Dash and Bella cooks beautiful iterations of what solo meals were always meant to be: exactly what you want, when and where you want them.
Today: 12 very Phyllis dishes to cook on your summer vacation and beyond.
Phyllis’ first post went up in June of 2013. She’s been with us since, giving us stories and ideas and the food she really wants to cook -- and even if you don't know it before you read each piece, it’s the food you want to cook, too.

Here are 12 of our collective, seasonal favorites, for you to feed yourself and your family with. Cook them on your summer vacation -- wherever you are -- and then commit them to memory when you come back. Some of them (see: the cookies, the caramel ice cream, the short rib tacos) will stay with you always, and the rest you’ll want to fill the fall with until the very last tomato hits the market.
I have a thing for most foods topped with a fried egg, a strange disdain for overly soupy tomato sauce, and I can never make it home without ripping off the end of a newly-bought baguette. I like spoons very much.
